Decompression as an alternative to Spinal Surgery
In addition to chiropractic adjustments, Beemer Back Center in Springdale, Arkansas also offers a state-of-the-art spinal decompression system that offers a non-surgical solution for disc-related neck and low back pain. Based on research, many experts now agree that decompression therapy is one of the most effective alternatives to surgery now available.
Dr. Beemer has utilized traction tables for years in the treatment of certain disc and/or nerve related problems. Decompression goes a step farther. It can gently relieve pressure in the neck and lower back while increasing circulation to spinal discs.
A spinal decompression therapy system consists of a motorized split table that is programmed by a computer to provide cycling distractive forces along the axis of the lumbar spine. The intensity of intermittent force is increased gradually to help prevent muscles from contracting in reaction to being stretched. It is believed that reducing the pressure in the lumbar discs may also promote healing of the disc as fluids and nutrients enter the disc through diffusion
Neck pain, low back pain, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, bulging and even some herniated discs have all shown positive results from spinal decompression therapy.
A typical session lasts about twenty minutes with no real recovery time required. My husband has suffered from a herniated and bulging disc in the past and so far nothing offers the relief this therapy does for him. Minimal cost, short therapy time, often covered by insurance, and no knives just may be the therapy you were seeking. Why not give it a try?
Yours in health,
